Used range hoods ready for installation can be purchased from retail marketplaces, such as Amazon and Alibaba, as well as from auction sites such as eBay. Local classifieds sites such as Craigslist also frequently contain listings for used range hoods, though availability varies by location.
Amazon features a marketplace program that allows users to create listings for and sell products directly through the site. When a user creates a listing, they have the ability to link their listing to Amazon's listing for the same product, if it is already being sold. When a users views the listing for a product, there is a section that displays the number of any used versions available. By clicking on this number, users can view all of the used items available along with information about its condition and the user ratings of that seller.
Seller ratings can also be found on all listings created on eBay. These ratings are comprised of feedback and reviews completed by users who have successfully completed a transaction with that seller. A seller's feedback is the primary way a user can establish a level of trust with a potential buyer. The rating contains the number of total reviews and the percent that are favorable.
